Azure synapse link creates model.json with no partitions

I am following this link below to copy dataverse data to Azure SQL DB using azure data factory pipelines. The model.json file created by my synapse link for dataverse is correctly creating the schema and attribute names for all the tables/entities. However, no data is coming across in the pipeline because the model.json file is not updated with partition location for any of the entities.

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A platform and thanks for posting your question.

    It seems like you’re facing an issue with the model.json file not being updated with the partition location for the entities. This could be due to formatting issues of the partition location path in the model.json file. Here are the steps you can follow to fix this issue:

    1. Open the model.json file in a text editor.
    2. Find the partitions.Location property.
    3. Change "" to "".
    4. Fix any "%2F" encoding in the URL to "/".

    Please note that the model.json file in a Common Data Model folder describes the data in the folder, metadata and location, as well as how the file was generated and by which data producer. The partitions.Location property in the model.json file is crucial as it provides the location of the data files.

    If you continue to face issues, I recommend checking out these resources:
